The Big Sales Pitch

Well, the Wednesday night portion of the DNC was more then a little interesting. I’ve never seen so many politically connected people running around like a bunch of chickens with their heads cut off,  somewhat of a usual state for the left  but, I digress. I have to admit watching Senator Durbin go through a complete meltdown over Brett Baier’s question, “Are you better off today then four years ago?”,  was one of the most pleasurable moments of the whole two days  but, yesterday was just plain weird.

Sandra Fluke, Dem “expert witness” on women’s health care said a Romney Presidency would mean a “bigoted” America.  Huh? I don’t think any of this is about choice. It’s more about an agenda to eliminate choice.  We’re all supposed to march lockstep for the leftist agenda. “Choice” is a huge word but, the left has marginalized it to mean only one thing.

I could not believe the Democrats put Sandra Fluke on in prime time.  She was pathetic, a self-absorbed self-pitying self-ish caricature of the entitlement mentality.

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz completely lost it. Living in an alternate reality does have a price. She’s a lot of fun to watch as she tries to explain her consistent lies. When confronted she runs away. She really is the gift that keeps on giving, just like Biden.

DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse did not respond to a request for comment regarding the cancellations, which came after reports that the party had put “God” back on the platform and affirmed Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Wasserman Schultz went on CNN tonight and denied reports of “discord” with the White House over the party’s decision to include the terms, claiming the party had “a two-thirds vote” on the issue.

”Did you really think that it was two-thirds? It seemed like a lot of people felt like it wasn’t quite there,” CNN’s Brianna Keilar asked.

“It was absolutely a two-thirds,” Wasserman Schultz said.

After the interview, CNN host Anderson Cooper said Wasserman Schultz’s version of events was “an alternate reality.”

and just in case you may have missed it….

Delegates Oppose Adding God and Jerusalem to Platform

Bill Clinton gave one very strange speech. He had very positive things to say about the Bush family, how closely they work together on humanitarian causes. He even stated those who don’t agree with the left are not “evil people”. He seemed to be endorsing his own Presidency and not that of Obama. He did forget to mention his move to the center and, working with Repubs in Congress, was the real reason for his successful Presidency. He also forgot to mention his involvement with the Fannie Mae meltdown.

In 1999, Fannie Mae came under pressure from the Clinton administration to expand mortgage loans to low and moderate income borrowers by increasing the ratios of their loan portfolios in distressed inner city areas designated in the CRA of 1977.[18] Additionally, institutions in the primary mortgage market pressed Fannie Mae to ease credit requirements on the mortgages it was willing to purchase, enabling them to make loans to subprime borrowers at interest rates higher than conventional loans.[18]

In 1999, The New York Times reported that with the corporation’s move towards the subprime market “Fannie Mae is taking on significantly more risk, which may not pose any difficulties during flush economic times. But the government-subsidized corporation may run into trouble in an economic downturn, prompting a government rescue similar to that of the savings and loan industry in the 1980s.”[19] Alex Berenson of The New York Times reported in 2003 that Fannie Mae’s risk is much larger than is commonly held.[20]Nassim Taleb wrote in The Black Swan: “The government-sponsored institution Fannie Mae, when I look at its risks, seems to be sitting on a barrel of dynamite, vulnerable to the slightest hiccup.

I’m with Charles Krauthammer on this one;

“This is one of the strangest nomination speeches, I think, ever given,” he  continued. “It was a kind of an amalgam between a State of the Union address, a  policy wonk seminar and what sounded to me like a campaign speech for a third  Clinton term. Obama was sort of incidental. He’d be shoved in every once in a  while in the speech as a way to say, ‘well, he thinks as I do.’”

  1. Chris Matthews beclowns himself ….he must be competing for the ‘Beclowning Crown’

    “I always figured that if Bill Clinton landed on Mars, he would know how to do it with them, he would know how to reproduce, he would know everything. He’d just instinctively know how to talk to people.”

    • Reproduce? Are you sure you want to mention “relations” when talking about Bubba?

  2. The Original

    The way the leftist media is touting Clinton’s speech you would think it was the best speech ever given . . . right after MO’s. This is what I expected, but it still doesn’t make it less disheartening.

  3. The Original

    And by the way, if you didn’t watch Fox you wouldn’t hear the GOP rebuttal to anything. Very obvious who the MSM is supporting.

    AB Stoddard still is falling all over herself over Clinton’s speech.

    • “AB Stoddard still is falling all over herself over Clinton’s speech.”

      Could she have been any mushier? LOL 😀 She has a crush!

  5. Fauxcahontas says the “system is rigged”…DUH! We know that, look who’s in charge…been in charge for almost 4 years. Whines about the Consumer Protection Agency she was to head up. Does she not know we already have one of those? She’s into the politics of envy.

  6. I have news for him….I’m upset with the Preezy too!!

    “The president of a top Arab American group is lashing out at the 11th hour political maneuvering that restored language about Israel capital to the Democratic convention platform — calling the move “insulting to my community.”

    Dr. James Zogby, president of the Arab American Institute, a DNC delegate and a member of the convention’s platform committee, blasted the re-insertion of language affirming that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel in an interview with POLITICO.

    “I think it was embarrassing,” Zogby said. “What bothers me is the way it was done.”

    Democrats had initially dropped some language dating to 2008 about Jerusalem in their 2012 platform — but restored it on a quick voice vote Wednesday.

    While two-thirds of the delegates were required to vote in the affirmative, there was significant opposition on the floor to the resolution — which also restored the word God to the platform. The DNC held the voice vote three times, before declaring it passed without a roll call. That news was met with boos from delegates across the convention hall.

    Zogby said about his Arab American constituency: “They’re upset. They’re upset with me. They’re upset with us. They’re upset with the president.”……

      Hopefully, it will be a beautiful evening!

  7. Dems are so mainstream…want to ban corporate profits…DUH!!

  8. Shame on Clinton….
    […]“Yes We Can” became “No One Could Have” – Americans should not, Clinton urged, be disappointed in President Obama for failing to achieve the great things he promised in his soaring speeches–or even the bare minimum that we had expected. It was never actually possible, given the state the country had been in. “No president–not me or any of my predecessors could have repaired all the damage in just four years,” Clinton said.

    That excuse is not only an acknowledgement of failure, but an admission of fraud. If he had not promised to do more, and to be more, than any other politician, Barack Obama would not only have lost the election in 2008–he would also have lost the primary to his rival, Hillary Clinton. At the time, Bill called Obama’s rhetoric what it was: a “fairy tale.”[…]

  9. “Let me get this straight. (This is a long sentence.)

    We’re going to be gifted with a healthcare plan
    we are forced to purchase, and fined if we don’t,
    which puportedly covers at least 10 million more people,
    without adding a single new doctor,
    but provides for 16000 new IRS agents,
    written by a committee
    whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it,
    passed by a congress that didn’t read it
    but exempted themselves from it,
    and signed by a president who smokes,
    with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes,
    for which we will be taxed for four years
    before any benefits take effect,
    by a government which has already backrupted social security
    and medicare,
    all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese
    and financed by a country that’s broke.”
    This is from Dr. Barbara Bellars, who is running for the Illinois State Legislature.
    I found it at Legal Insurrection.

      That pretty much sums it up correctly. I hope your (?) candidate wins, she sounds down to earth and knows what’s going on.

    • Sounds about right….

  10. Rush makes sense…Clinton did turn the economy around, BO hasn’t….not even close. Clinton thinks he would have done better, so do the delegates and most other Dems…. LOL 😀 Sabotaged!!

  11. Oh jeez, the scariest thing I have read to date…belong to the government?

  12. Hollydolly

    Anyone else think Clinton’s speech was to set the stage for Hillary 2016?

    • I think it was to lower the bar for BO …

  13. BO criticizes Clinton’s values (Democratic values) in 1994, no less.

    Kill me now, I can’t listen to ol’ Joe anymore. arrrrgggghhhhh.

    • I watched an NCIS re-run. Could not take it anymore. 😦

  15. Stock market rallied…unlimited bond buying to bolster the EU….
    “Large-scale purchases of short-term government bonds would drive up their price and push down their interest rate, or yield, making it less expensive for countries to borrow money. The new plan goes well beyond the ECB’s earlier, limited bond-purchase program, which was not big enough to decisively lower borrowing costs.

    After the ECB plan _ dubbed Outright Monetary Transactions or OMT_ was announced, the yields on government bonds across Europe fell and stock markets rallied.”

    I just couldn’t watch Mooch or Barry. I did hear a few sentences from Mooch on Fox News, but I just can’t allow myself to listen to “complete piggy manure.” She may have been young and in love, but Merry Barry was busy stimulating himself at Man’s Country at the time. Dim-o-cats were suckered in by emotional blarney. Slick Willie had nothing on Mooch, she was oiled and greased to perfection. Leave it to old Bill, he was paving the road for Hilary to the White House.

  17. Carole

    The picture of Barry with his daughters gave me the creeps.Don’t get me wrong, I have no ill feelings for the Obama girls. Let’s be honest, it is a known fact that Barry likes to swim in the male pond. If Mooch forgives him and stands up in front of God and the American people and swears that they are in love, he is a great father(actually he might be), that they have family meals together every night, and that he is the the most wonderful human alive on earth, far be it from me to argue her dillutional speech. However, it gives me the willies to see him sit there on a sofa (that sofa looks old and icky for a piece of furniture in the WH),smiling with his arms around the two Wons. What teenager or 11 year old sits like that with their father?

      I did. I came from an affectionate family. Maybe you didn’t but there’s nothing wrong with being happy enough to want to cuddle with your dad on the couch.

      • I am from an affectionate family, as well. But there comes a time when it is inappropriate for a father to “cuddle” with his daughters. Generally, that is around the age of nine or ten. Hugs are fine, sitting together on the sofa is fine, but hand-holding and snuggling are no-no’s.
